Mountain Ridge High School’s Choir found a creative way to visualize their performance for the graduating class of 2020. They filmed all the students singing on the same stage at different times and then edited it to create a virtually stunning musical number. Great job, Mountain Ridge High Choir students, Ms. Robertson, and Mr. DeHaan for a stunning performance.
Herriman High School’s Chamber Singers did not let social distancing stop them from performing for this year’s graduation ceremonies. The students performed the song “You Will be Found” virtually from the comfort of their own homes for a stunning performance. Congratulations to everyone who helped make this a memorable performance.
Last year, Jordan Education Foundation board members established the Patrice Johnson Superintendent’s Scholarship as a tribute to the former superintendent. Funds for this scholarship are donated personally by each member of the JEF Board of Directors. Each year the current superintendent selects a recipient to receive $2,000 for academic purposes. The student is selected based on grit, determination, leadership, service and example of excellence. This year, Superintendent Godfrey selected Alondra Gomez from West Jordan High School.
Principal Jim Birch describes Alondra as someone who faces each day with fierce optimism, hard work, and tenacity. He says Alondra has always strived to take challenging courses, she plans to attend the University of Utah in the fall and Mr. Birch believes Alondra will go on inspiring many people to strive for, and achieve their dreams.
The Teri Timpson Scholarship was established to honor the legacy of Teri Timpson, an educator and administrator for Jordan School District who loved West Jordan High School.
The purpose of this scholarship is to encourage qualified students to pursue a four-year college degree in education and eventually teach in Jordan School District. The Timpson family understands the impact outstanding educators have on young people. Teri Timpson influenced children, administrators, and teachers to elevate their dreams beyond what they thought possible thus strengthening families and communities. The recipient selected by the Timpson family is Natalie Sanchez-Rosado from West Jordan High School. Principal Birch says she is a student with an amazing attitude. She has experienced working in the pre-school and daycare. She knows from experience what a teacher can do to bring out the best and that’s what Natalie hopes to accomplish.
